2012 Commodore 64 6 years, 3 months ago #3240

Apparently, Commodore USA is set to release modern updates / spiritual successors of the Amiga, VIC, and C64, the latter of which is literally packed in a C64-clone chassis. That alone may get me to buy one- I must ruefully admit I have never owned a C64...

To copy and paste my Twitter rant:
PSA: If you're getting excited about that new Commodore Amiga, stop. It's just a Linux box with an Amiga logo A modern successor to the original Amiga does exist, though. It's called the AmigaOne, and it runs the latest AmigaOS. Hyperion owns AmigaOS, and is actively developing a modern version; Commodore owns the Amiga name. That's it.

See here to learn more about the AmigaOne: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AmigaOne

There's even a netbook on the way. Fancy that, a portable AmigaOS machine!

So, It's just a PC... In a custom case... For more than a Mac Mini...

I think I'll spend my money on a REAL Amiga...

Its a VERY VERY expensive PC running a semi custom flavor of Linux in a Mac Mini form factor...
